Stowe is one of the finest of Georgian landscape gardens comprising valleys and vistas, narrow lakes and rivers with more than 30 temples and monuments, designed by leading architects of the 18th-century.

Stowe Landscape Garden was the creation of the Temple family, Stowe has been described as “a work to wonder at” in its size, splendour and variety.  Many garden buildings at Stowe Landscape Garden have been beautifully restored and thousands of shrubs and trees have been planted in recent years.  Restoration work continues in the gardens and the house.
